Donna and John, True that this species gets huge but I think "several
meters" is a bit of an exagerration. The largest plants I have seen in
habitat (and I have seen at least a couple hundred large ones) have leaves
that may aproach 12 - 13 feet with the petiole.


 You need to put your plant into a very sturdy hanging basket,
